Rich or Happy

It is so easy to let go and give up when everything appears to be out of reach. When there appears to be no help, and all hope is lost. In this world, there are millions with the assistance they need. For so many others, they strive everyday with the bare minimum to provide for their families and loved ones. So few amongst us billions have the millions and billions to do as they please.

The rich have everything. I have spent too much time aspiring, dreaming to be rich. I never developed the ideas needed to reach their class, and my obvious series of poor life choices pits me with the much lower class, and it is something I learn to live with everyday.

Today, like most days, I could use a lot more money. I’ll easily dream of a world with a million dollars at my disposal. Many are determined enough to turn their dreams into a reality. I may too be determined enough.

Although, if I never find the road that makes me rich with wealth, I hope that I find the road that makes me rich with happiness.

Both would be great though.
